The Original RIBTEC Rib Protector



Developed by the drivers of the European and World Karting Championships

As with all our rib protectors this early model was tested on the most demanding rubber covered tracks that place exceptional forces on the ribs and body. Drivers like Kimi Raikkonen, Jenson Button, Vitantonio Liuzzi and Anthony Davidson were all instrumental in helping develop this product when they drove karts.

This simple yet effective rib protector was the first ever protector to market that offered real protection, rather than a piece of foam hanging in a waistcoat, which was all that was available before.

Although now superseded by the R4 it still offers a very good degree of protection at an affordable price.

"When using the Ribtec to protect all of our corporate customers, we have been amazed to find that this year, rib problems have been reduced by an astonishing 98%". (Bill Sisley, owner of Buckmore Park Kart Circuit)

RIBTEC USER INFORMATION

The Ribtec must be worn high up under the arms to give maximum protection.

When seated, the top of the belt has to show above the top edge of the seat to be at its most effective.

When fitting make sure that there is a gap at the front of about 10 to 15cm. (See diagram across.) If the belt is too big and no gap exists the level of protection afforded will be reduced. For maximum comfort, wear over a tee-shirt but underneath a racesuit. Test the belt on the track before any modification takes place, as the belt needs the full width to remain in position. If movement still occurs, use the Ribtec Harness to keep it in position
.
Between each race keep the belt flat or wrapped around a crash helmet. Curling the belt up in a tight roll, or creasing it in half could leave it permanently damaged.

The Velcro strap should be cut down to size when the wearer is happy with the required length. Chest measurements should be taken with a measuring tape pulled tight at the height of the red line on the diagram opposite.

Women should measure directly under the bust line.
